Born in California and raised in Germany, France and Romania, I currently reside in Bellevue, Washington where I keep busy exemplifying the saying “do what you love and you won’t work a day in your life.” I’m fortunate enough to be able to drive cars for BMWBLOG as a Senior Writer and then share my thoughts with our awesome readers. I’m also fortunate enough to be able to work in the video game industry over at Microsoft’s 343 Industries as a Playtest Coordinator where I help make Halo awesome every day.
